sunday stash #8

here's one of my favorite batiks. i 've had it awhile, and used it in a quilt. it is a large scale 'doodle' of loops and wavy lines on a navy background. i had a lot of ideas for this fabric, but only made the one quilt.

i've have the top pieced for awhile and i'll tell you why. i made it about the same time i had started LAing and i knew that i wanted to quilt it by echoing the lines in the pattern of the fabric. well, being a newbie LAer, i wasn't experienced enough to do that, (i could meander and do a loop meander) so i put it on a hanger and hung it in the closet knowing one day i'd be comfortable quilting echos. i think that here in the next month or so i'll get it on the frame and turn this top into a quilt. it's only fair- i've been LAing for 5 years now, and i'm confident enough to quilt echoes.

the pattern i used is called "circle of stars" by fig tree quilts. i found it for purchase here. if i remember correctly, the pattern had directions for the flying geese using the flip and sew method, i figured out the measurements to do them the no waste way. if you want, email me, i'll dig out my pattern and email you the cutting sizes for that. i hardly ever follow directions :) directions are just a suggestion.
